Looking for help finding my origins

Postby ColeReynolds » 03 Jun 2010, 21:35

I am trying to find out if I have any family I could possibly contact in Italy. This is the information I know so far.

My born name was Eleo Francelli, I was born on July 24, 1960. I had a twin brother named Lino Francelli. Our adoption papers through the Catholic Charities adoption service said we came from a foundling hospital in Salsomaggiore, Italy. I have contacted the Office of Civil Status to try and get some type of records, but was wondering if there was another route I could take in the meantime?

You can try contacting the town in Italy, Salsomaggiore, and ask if they have birth records fromt hat date. You might even try the local church there. Here is a site with information that might help. http://en.comuni-italiani.it/034/032/
